Lea, posted a comment to the recommendation of Pope Benedict's book Jesus of Nazareth. She put in a well-deserved pitch for Lawrence Cunningham's Jesus - The Teacher Within. I have read it, liked it very much and thought it had very special appeal to those whose profession/vocation is teaching.

While we are on the subject of good books about the person of Jesus, I would also mention Michael Casey's Fully Human Fully Divine - An Interactive Christology. Casey is a Trappist monk in Australia and author of other great books including Toward God: The Ancient Wisdom of Western Prayer, Sacred Reading - The Art of Lectio Divina and another on the Rule of St. Benedict.
